Editorial Reviews

All of your favorite Pokémon characters are back and are joined for the first time by the legendary Pokémon Celebi and Suicune in this latest exciting Pokemon adventure! In order to escape a greedy Pokémon hunter, Celebi must use the last of its energy to travel through time to the present day. Celebi brings along Sammy, a boy who had been trying to protect it. Along with Ash, Pikachu, and the rest of the gang, Sammy and Celebi encounter an enemy far more advanced than the hunter left behind in the past. This new enemy possesses a Pokeball called a "Dark Ball," which transforms the Pokémon it captures into evil and far stronger creatures. When Celebi is captured, the fate of the entire forest is threatened. Let POKÉMON 4EVER transport you to a world of adventure as Ash, Suicune, and the rest take action to save the day!

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not 4ever... March 18, 2003
After a short, limited release in theaters last year, Pokemon 4Ever is finally coming to video courtesy of Miramax. And while it's not the vast improvement to the previous Warner Bros DVD releases we were hoping for, it is still a decent offering.
The story, basically, is that Ash and company come across a boy named Sam and a Celebi, who have traveled 40 years from the past. But before Celebi can bring Sam back to his own time, it is captured by the Iron Mask Marauder, who captures Celebi using a Dark Ball, and transforms it into a destructive monster. While the Marauder and Celebi destroy the forest, Ash and Sam must try and save Celebi. There are some surprisingly emotional scenes in the movie, especially towards the end as we find out the fate of Celebi and Sam's relationship with Ash.
The DVD offers trailers for this movie and the Japanese trailer for the fifth movie, as well as previews for other Miramax titles. Fans will be pleased to know that the Pikachu short has been restored for the DVD, and as usually, it's pretty funny and features plenty of cute Pokemon. It also a multi-angle animation progression feature, but the footage shown is very brief; each of the four segments clock in at barely under a few seconds, if that. One major complaint about this DVD is that despite the fact that this is the fourth Pokemon feature, it is still only presented on DVD in FULLSCREEN. There are many instances in the movie where a character is speaking, but you can't see him or her, since they are cropped off the screen. I'd hoped this unfortunate tradition was left behind with Warner Bros, but the curse follows the series to Miramax. Listen up, Miramax, we don't mind the black bars on the screen, we really don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars A film of this quality lasts 4Ever. May 12, 2003
By Darrel
(This is a review of the DVD edition of Pokémon 4Ever. It contains no spoilers other than those that could be found on the back of the DVD cover.)
Pokémon 4Ever is a great and fun film of the quality we've come to expect from not only pokémon films, but anime in general. If you are a pokémon fan of any age, this is a must own film.
Graphics (5/5):
Overall, the graphics are of the same high quality we can expect of any Pokémon episode, or movie. They even do a mild increase of the graphics quality of the standard pokémon, by giving it a mild 3D feel in certain areas.
Music (4/5):
While the movie does not hold the awe inspiring music that the previous two held, the music is flawless, and does not detract from the movie in any way. While it could have been better, it is fine as it is.
Story (5/5):
The movie's story holds together well. A boy named Sammy protects Celebi, the legendary pokémon, from a pokémon hunter. Celebi, to protect them from this threat, travels forward in time, to the time of our heroes Ash, Pikachu, and the rest. Together, they must protect Celebi, and the rest of the forest, from their new threat--a hunter more powerful than the one left behind!
The story is mildly simplistic, but as it is a children's story foremost, it cannot be faulted for that. All plot threads that are started are finished by the end of the movie, and you get a full sense of fulfillment. They did extraordinary in this area.
Fun (5/5):
The story is not only fun for children, but for more mature pokémon fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well, it's stylish... April 15, 2003
Yes, it's definitely the most stylish of the four so far released in the US. The entire movie takes place in a forest, so they decided to do some creative computer animation and special visuals. The forest-themed threat of walking tree branches in the form of Wargreymon called forth by a possessed Celebi was a neat touch.
This movie, very much like the third one, was more about art direction and visuals than a good story. This is most apparent in the far-too-long scene in which Celebi takes Ash and his new friend Sammy flying with him. This scene does absolutely nothing other than show off the forest. It doesn't move the plot in any way, shape, or form. Also, Jesse, James, and Meowth are put way way in the back seat for this movie, since a new Team Rocket member has come to steal the show.
Strong points? Excellent animation, the best of all the movies. Also, of all the Legendary Pokemon, Celebi is the most loveable. Even more loveable than Mew. Also, the Pikachu short is pretty entertaining. I'm sure a lot of people out there would love to see Pokemon get attacked by a raging lawnmower. Come on admit, you can't wait to see Pokemon get attacked by a raging lawnmower. Well, that's on this DVD.
And, of course, the best part of any Pokemon DVD: the commentary. I remember listening to it on the first one and I really liked those two guys, Norman Grossfeld and Michael Haigney. This time, they brought in some guests, including a writer and the cast. WARNING: About the guy who does the voice of Meowth, MEOWTH'S VOICE IS HIS REAL VOICE. Don't get freaked when you hear it because I warned you. Sadly, the commentary ends way before the movie does. I've never seen that before, weird.
Anyway, if you want to see Pokemon get attacked by a raging lawnmower, then get this DVD. If not, well the commentary is entertaining, even if it is short. Otherwise, it's not that great.
